lyrics

Cozzolani's Christmas/Epiphany motet "Quis audivit unquam tale?" is notable for it’s variety of textures, alternating antiphonal motives and invertible counterpoint and florid declamatory writing, with unexpected extensions of melodic ideas. Word painting for the parallel expressions of ascending and descending and for the contrast of the Kingdom of Heaven and the humble manger make this one of the most immediately attractive of Cozzolani’s works.

In the 1650 publication "Quis audivit unquam tale?" is scored for two sopranos and bass and Magnificat’s recording features Catherine Webster and Jennifer Ellis Kampani along with contralto Elizabeth Anker, who sings some of the bass part at pitch and some transposed up an octave.
